Carers and Aspirations Fair

On 12th July 2016 we held our first “Careers and Aspirations Fair” for children in all classes to be able to talk to people in different jobs in our local community.

Below are some quotes from the children after the event:

 

“The Careers and Aspirations Fair was helpful and there was a range of careers I hadn’t considered before”

 

“I thought the careers fair was useful, and it was fun to find out about new jobs like health visitors, life guards and football coaches”

 

“I learnt a lot about engineering and writing as I spoke to an engineer and a writer. There was a wide range of jobs to choose from, footballers to poets, from engineers to life guards; it was all there!”

“The fair has taught me things that I never knew, like computers design buildings as small as a millimetre upwards, and it is very difficult to record an exact design on a computer”

 

"The fair made me think of what I would like to be when I am older"

"The fair was a good idea as I could talk to other people with different careers and it made me think of what I would like to do when I grow up"

 

"The fair helped me gain confidence to talk to people I don't know, and ask lots of questions about their careers"

"The fair has made me even more inspired to push on in all my aspects in school, to become a mechanic creating the first flying car"

 

"The fair was a unique experience, and it also showed and inspired me that I can combine 2 jobs"

 

"The fair has given me inspiration to become a lifeguard as well as a beautician"
